A new feature that allows you to paint your body in a variety of different colours has been developed by a tech startup.
Using a photo of your body to create a new colour has been dubbed “body-capping”.
It is part of an open-source project called Colour-Coding your Body Paint, which has been designed by the team at Bamboo and available on GitHub.
Bamboo’s team created a paint tool that is similar to Photoshop, with the aim of helping artists quickly and easily create colour-coded body paint.
The team claims it has already seen a 20 per cent increase in usage in just the past three weeks.
The team behind Colour-Cs body-casing app are now looking to extend the tool further by introducing colour-curing in future versions of the app.
Color-caving can be done with a range of paint tools, including brushes, paint sticks and spray paint, and it can be used for any type of painting.
However, the process can be a bit tricky and a lot of the steps involved are manual.
The company has been working on its paint tool for several months, and in the meantime, they’ve had a number of requests for the software to be more robust.
So the team decided to make a more robust version, which can be controlled with a simple smartphone app.
It allows users to pick the colour of the paint they want to use and also can be set to use a “bulk” colour palette, which will give the user more control over how their paint is blended.
A ‘Bulk’ colour palette means the user has more control about how their paints are blended, such as using different paints or different brushes.
Budda Muthusamy, co-founder of Colour-CS, said that it was a big leap forward for the team.
“I think it’s a step forward for what we’ve been trying to do and it will open up a whole new world of creative possibilities,” he said.
“The tool is a really easy to use application that has great features and it’s really fun to use.”
Mr Muthisamy said the team had been using the software for about two weeks, and the tool had already seen an 80 per cent uptake in the past week.
In the future, he said, the team plans to add more colour-curating features and also offer a variety for users to choose from.
“The next version of Colour CS will bring more options to the colour palette and we’re also working on the ability to use different colours,” he added.
“In the long term, we want to add colour-saturation and colour-transparency to the tool.”
The colour-changing process is also easy to implement, with a number on-screen options and a button to enable or disable the colour-change.
There are also a number in the app that will allow you to colour-code your body for your friends to see.
The app is available for iOS and Android, and you can get a head start on using the new feature by signing up to the Colour-cs beta program.
